9780226332284: Armenia: A Historical Atlas

From its conversion to Christianity to the Genocide during World War I, from the Soviet occupation to its recent independence, Armenia has seen a long and often turbulent history. In the magnificent Armenia: A Historical Atlas, Robert H. Hewsen traces Armenia's rich past from ancient times to the present day through more than two hundred full-color maps packed with information about physical geography, demography, and sociopolitical, religious, cultural, and linguistic history.

Hewsen has divided the maps into five sections, each of which begins with a chronology of important dates and a historical introduction to the period. Specialized maps include Ptolemy's second-century map of Armenia, as well as maps of Roman, Cilician, Ottoman, tsarist, and Soviet Armenia. Other maps show the Persian khanate of Erevan, the Caucasian campaigns of World War I, the Armenian Genocide, the Armenian monuments in Turkey and Transcaucasia, the worldwide diaspora, ground plans of selected cities, and plans of the great monastery of Echmiadzin in 1660, 1890, and 1990. The atlas concludes with maps portraying the Karabagh war and the new Armenian Republic, and an extensive bibliography compiles references to the vast historical, ethnological, and travel literature on the region.

The first comprehensive and authoritative atlas of any of the former Soviet republics, this book does not treat Armenia in isolation, but instead sets it within the context of Caucasia as a whole, providing detailed information on neighboring regions such as Georgia and Azerbaijan. Armenia: A Historical Atlas will be an essential reference and an important teaching tool for generations to come.

Review:

“Many of the maps include not only typical information regarding towns and cities, but also details regarding battles that were fought and locations of key Armenian structures. . . The detail included in the atlas alone is amazing. But the atlas is not limited to only maps. There is also considerable text that accompanies each map explaining interesting features, including the commerce that the region was known for . . . the historical structures that were built and destroyed, and the various ethnic groups that occupied the land. . . . The maps are packed with information about physical geography, demography, and sociopolitical, religious, cultural, and linguistic history.”--Armenian Bar Association Newsletter (Armenian Bar Association Newsletter)

“Concerned not only with the evolution of the Armenian empire-state from ancient times to the present, this atlas is also a highly informative history of Armenians covering an astonishingly broad range of subjects. . . . This rich and magisterial atlas is highly recommended.”--Choice (Choice)

“Robert Hewsen has prepared an opus magnum that has no rival in Armenian studies. This pioneering and largely definitive work is the best atlas of Armenia ever prepared. It will be a valuable tool in the hands of historians, geographers, and students of Armenia and the Armenian people. . . . The atlas is accompanied by a rich historical and geographical text that enriches it enormously. The maps themselves are computer generated, clear, well presented, and attractive. Hewsen is to be heartily congratulated on a work that is extremely useful and will now form the authoritative basis for this field. All students of Armenia are in his debt.” (Michael E. Stone Slavic Review)
